I have the exact same problem - worked fine for past 7 months, then "poof - complete fail".
the modem works fine connected directly to PC; once i connect the router i get the orange strobe on "Int. Connection"

UNder the properties section of your wireless connection, make sure the tcp/ip is set to obtain the IP address automatically.... same for the DNS

Reset it by putting something sharp like a paper clip into the Reset hole on the back and hold for 15 seconds. Now wait for all the lights to stop flashing and remain on. You should be able to connect now, if not, then change the microfilter or call your ISP and ask them to test the line.
Hope this helps
